Zoya Gie Gie

had a jumping lesson on Aramis this morning, then i rode my friend's horse for a little bit... just to get the feel of riding a different horse. i was literally in shock at how different all the gaits felt! i knew the trot would be smoother, Aramis' trot makes your teeth feel like they are going to fall out... but even the canter was way more smooth. i love my big galoot, though :)

today's polish is Zoya Gie Gie! i got in my May ipsy Glam Bag and couldn't wait to put it on. it's a light pink shimmer that is delicate and fun. it's fairly sheer, i think it would look great as a glaze over a French manicure... and if that isn't your thing, you can achieve complete opacity in three coats. i highly recommend a topcoat over this one to bring out the sparkles it has to offer!

three coats Gie Gie, one coat Seche Vite.




i keep having to file my nails shorter because they keep peeling at the tips or just sheering off... *sigh* i'm trying to decide if i should chop them completely for the horse show this weekend, i don't want to have to futz around with them! what do you guys think? Ria :)

  2. Very pretty! I might have to get that as I love Zoyas polishes. And on the gait thing, I've ridden probably a hundred different horses in my lifetime of being a former horse owner & giving huntseat lessons at a riding school & each & every one of them are so very different, it's not even funny. I've personally owned 15 horses & my favorite one had the choppiest trot I have ever experienced. His canter was fine, but that trot was terrible. Horses that have a bit of a straight shoulder usually are choppy. When you're not wanting to post & just want to sit the trot, lean back just a bit & it makes it much more comfy. And you won't bounce off the saddle. Good luck at the show & don't cut the nails!! LOL
